I'm going with Orlando will win the series in 6 games as the Celtics will tire themselves out after the long first round series against the Bulls and will not be able to overcome the Orlando Magic. It will be a good series but it won't come down to the wire every game.
Boston will win in 7 or 6 games. there are only 2 players to worry about in Orlando, it's Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu. and Boston has three; Pierce, Allen, and Rondo. Perkins and Davis will take care of Howard and Pierce has Turkoglu taken care of. The Magic need to worried about Pierce because he can either drive or shoot it in their faces. Allen because he just got done scoring 51 against the Bulls, and he can shoot whenever and has the ability to make game winners. Rondo because, he has been averaging a triple double the whole 1st round series. Finally, if KG does come back Howard is screwed and the Celtics are still hot from there previous series.
Boston has a very good chance,, we know Howard is going to get probably 20-30 inside and if the 3 point shots are hot they'll do well here as well. Boston however will have a better team game with a much improved Rondo controlling the game by penetrating when possible and dishing off when defended aggressively. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce have the playoff savvy to counter Howards inside physical dominance ... I wouldn't be surprised to see a good shwing by Perkins who played well against the Bulls.
i am a Boston fan, i want the Celtics to repeat, but without KG it doesn't look like it, Orlando is a good team and Dwight Howard is really good, i don't think Perkins could handle him or Davis or Moore for that matter, but who knows really? Boston could sweep, Howard could not be playing his best in this series against Boston. i hope they win
boston is going to win because they have alot of big men to foul dwight howard(perkins, davis, morre, scalabrine, powe if healthy) and they defend the three point shot well...if orlando struggled with the sixers do you honestly think they can beat boston in a 7 game series without home court advantage...
boston will win 4-1 or 4-2 because orlando doesn't have any physical defense and boston is going to outscore them anyway
Celtics will take it in six or seven games. Even though it really hurts them not to have KG, they still are a championship team. They will win this series, though it probably will be another close one.
Orlando will because of there rebounds and points by Howard and outside shooting by Lewis and Turgolu
